Welcome to Kalabash® - the sustainable, natural bodycare brand inspired by the joy, positivity and laidback vibe of the Caribbean.
Sharron Jenkins - Owner/Founder Kalabash®
Hi, I’m Sharron and I make luxurious artisan soaps and natural bodycare products that are 100% natural, plus scented soy wax candles to soothe at the end of stressful days. My desire is that you’ll sink into a world of luxurious self-care, feeling healthy, energised and empowered.
My Windrush parents came to London from the island of Dominica in the 1950’s, but going back on a visit as a 9-year-old, I was completely blown away. The lush landscape and fragrant aromas arrested every one of my senses. This place was paradise and inspired Kalabash®.
Years later I began to experiment, combining warm, tropical scents with the most sustainable, natural ingredients I could source. I actually started out making bodycare products from my own kitchen table over a decade ago and launched Kalabash in later life in 2018.
Having seen the glory of Dominica firsthand back in the 70s, I was determined to reduce my carbon footprint, work as sustainably as possible and support school-building and homeless projects back on the island following the devastating impact of
climate change-induced Hurricane Maria in 2017.
I named "Kalabash" after the magnificent Calabash tree, a native and versatile evergreen which produces fragrant fresh blooms every day.
It's a beautiful reminder of what this sustainable black owned brand stands for: holistic self-care, luxury and sustainability and a tropical slice of
Caribbean beauty in your home each day.
